Reading in Biblical Studies

**Prerequisite: The successful completion of a DTS (Discipleship Training School).


The Reading in Biblical Studies (RBS) course is a programme designed to expose you to a breadth of Biblical studies, as well as provide a basic foundation of a broad-range of theology.

During the course, you will read a large volume of reference literature from a pre-selected list determined by the course advisor. Your study will include mandatory reading, as well as books chosen by you from the different topics in line with your own areas of interest.

Lecture Phase

Regular one-on-one tutoring with the course advisor is also a part of this course. This gives you a chance to process and ask questions about what you are reading. It provides a safe place to explore, discuss, and critique concepts from the books or ideas the books inspire.

Application of the material will provide you with resources for preaching, teaching, or personal bible study. The course involves reading 100 pages per day, 6 days a week, for 12 weeks. You will work approximately 8 hours per day.

Topics covered include:

  • Old & New Testament background studies
  • Biblical & Church History
  • Biblical & Systematic Theology
  • Canonics, Hermeneutics, & Biblical Archaeology
  • Philosophy & Worldview
  • Scientific Theology
  • Pastoral Care, Education, Homiletics, Evangelism, Missions, Spiritual Warfare, & Worship

We look forward to having you join us for this school!
